Honor’s upcoming flagship phone, the Magic 6, is set to be released early next year. Although it won’t be one of the first smartphones to feature Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, it will still be powered by the latest chipset from Qualcomm.
In addition to the powerful processor, the Honor Magic 6 will also come packed with AI features, following the current market trend. One notable AI feature is the personal assistant named YOYO, although it’s unclear if this will be available globally or limited to China.
During Qualcomm’s 2023 Snapdragon Summit, Honor CEO George Zhao announced that the Magic 6 will include a unique eye-tracking feature. This feature, called “eye-tracking based multimodal interaction,” will allow users to interact with the phone using their eyes. A demo showcased during the keynote revealed the potential of this technology, but its real-life accuracy remains to be seen.
While the Honor Magic 6 may not be the first Snapdragon 8 Gen 3-powered smartphone on the market, Qualcomm confirmed that other flagship devices like the Xiaomi 14 will be available in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more updates on the Honor Magic 6 as its release date approaches.
